At Open Arms, we believe every child has the right to survival and development and our aim is to give vulnerable children in Malawi the chance to achieve their potential within the love and security of a family home.
Therefore, once a child returns to their community from our Infant Homes, we continue to monitor and support them through our Community Outreach Programme - ensuring they not only transition and settle well, but continue to thrive in their new home environment.
Through regular visits, the Outreach Team monitor children’s health and development, provide basic essentials and medical care and offer professional advice and support to families where necessary.
In Malawi, it is mostly grandparents who take care of orphaned or abandoned children. This is despite the fact that older people have little or no economic support (UNICEF, 2019). As a result, families sometimes struggle to support these children.
For these families, Open Arms also provides a small monthly payment and your regular contribution will go towards this additional support.
